New ‘Ant-Man And The Wasp: Quantumania’ Clips Feature Scott’s First Encounter With Kang

Following last night’s world premiere, Marvel Studios has dropped three new clips from Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania! All are fun in different ways, capturing the light-hearted spirit of the franchise. However, there’s also a sense of how dire things are going to get in the MCU as Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) encounters Kang the Conqueror (Jonathan Majors) for the first time.

In that first encounter, we see that Kang has no idea who Ant-Man. When Scott tells him he’s an Avenger, Kang actually wonders if he’s killed him before. Staying true to the comics, it seems that Kang has killed so many Avengers across so many alternate universes that he’s lost track. Kinda makes you wonder how Ant-Man can possibly survive, right?

The next clip is an extension of a scene that has been in the trailers. It features Scott, Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly), Scott’s daughter Cassie (Kathryn Newton), Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), and Janet van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) experimenting with the Quantum Realm, someplace Janet is very familiar with.

And finally, this last one isn’t really new since we had a version of it the other day, but it shows Scott and Hope driving Cassie back after a night in jail. The teen has learned how to use the Pym Particles for herself to become a hero, and her Dad’s not too happy about it.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania hits theaters on February 17th!
